44-Palm Beach Post, Wed., November 13, 1968 Court Strikes Down 'Monkey Trial9 Law Seven Firms In Area Submit Bids For County's Vehicle Insurance SHREVEPORT, La. (API John Thomas Scopes, the defendant in the famous "monkey trial" of 1925. Tuesday hailed the Supreme Court's action in striking down Arkansas' antievolution law, saying it was "more-or-less a dead issue anyway." "It is what I have been working for all along," Scopes said at his home in Shreve-port. "I guess you could say sidered unconstitutional. His trial in the tiny hamlet of Dayton, Tenn., featured oratorical clashes between his famed attorney, Clarence Dar-row, and special prosecutor William Jennings Bryan. Scopes was convicted and fined $100, but the fine later was rescinded by the state supreme court on a technicality. Regarding the Supreme Court decision Tuesdav on the I'm very' happy about the decision." "I thought all along ever since 1925 the the law was unconstitutional," he said. Scopes was a 24-year-old substitute biology teacher when he was thrust into the limelight in 1925. He deliberately violated Tennessee's antievolution law teaching that man descended from the ape to test the law he con Arkansas law, Scopes said: "It was more-or-less a dead issue anyway, except in the minds of a few people who thought they were being discriminated against. Most of the schools got around the law by teaching development instead of evolution." hen Shopping IW I-T Classified on. $2,808; Charles R. Dorsey. $3,209 and Gracey Brothers, $3,209. Miles C.
